    Looking for a cheap, capable video card for games like Diablo 3, Skyrim etc. at reasonable settings. I'm thinking maybe a 5850 or something close to it. I'd prefer at least a AMD 57XX or Nvidia 46X series card. LMK what you have, and what you'd like for it. Thanks!

    Looking to keep this under $100, if possible

    Not interested in the 8800gts, but maybe the GTX280, at the right price. However, I'd prefer DX 10 capable cards.

    Thanks for the offer, but I'm looking for something a bit newer, and less of a power hog.

    Bumpage..... the 280 natively supports DX10 just not 10.1.

    How about an unlocked black PCB 10 memory chip GTX465? Been running it as a full 1280mb GTX470 now for about a month in SLI with another GTX470.

    Comes in retail box and was brand new when I got the card. Flashed it to the 470 two days after I installed the card so it is not even 2 months old.

    Shoot me a PM if your interested Paulie.
